What a shoot yesterday! was shooting a music video in my car and was driving around the IMAX in front of Waterloo station. the artist sat in the passenger seat rapping really aggressively, lit up like a proverbial BEACON with a maniacal smile plastered on his face.
Then joy of joys two police motor bikes roll up right next to the windows. at first the light catches their eyes, I could see his reaction as he then saw the rapper in my passenger seat rapping, under lit, with a sick maniac smile on his face.
PANIC sets in as the lights cannot turn green fast enough and we slowly pull off with the two police officers behind obviously discussing weather to pull me over or not.
I aint in a cell is all I can say, someone was looking over me.
Disgu!se’s music video “Storylines” is a beautiful tale. really enjoyed the creativity of the band, and the small crew shoot felt really enjoyable and had a great freedom! looking forward to more shoots likes this!
The Music video for upcoming artist K.A.D called “Go Crazy’ was an epic journey and a massive technical mountain of a project but it has come out looking insane!
For those of you who are interested, here are the techy details for the shoot:
programs used: premier and after effects + twixtor
cameras: 5D MK II + 7D
Lenses: 17-40 canonL + 70-300 canon IS USM (both beautiful lenses) I never try to mix too many focal lengths through a music video, this i find helps to create a sense of fluidity and emphasises the times when you do change the focal length heightening the meaning of the changes.
manfrotto tripod + smooth move video head
2x 1KW 4 bank tube lighting (unbranded kino flow lights) with barn doors to sharpen the edges of the light. unbranded kinos make a perfect cheaper version with just as good results!
